Join the Superior Legacy Society today!

The purpose of the Superior Legacy Society is to recognize alumni and friends who have the foresight and generosity to name LSSU in their wills, trusts, charitable gift annuity funds, life income funds, and life insurance policy. Sharing your intentions with us ensures that your wishes will be carried out according to your planned goals.

Do you have a gift plan? Would you like information on how to plan your gift for LSSU? Visit our gift planning site that provides detailed information as well as a gift illustrator that can offer financial gift opportunities based on your particular financial intent and charitable goal.

How to Become a Member:

The following types of commitments, confirmed in writing and subject to certain restrictions, qualify you for membership in the Superior Legacy Society:

  • a bequest provision in your will or revocable trust;
  • a life-income gift that names Lake Superior State University as a remainder beneficiary, such as a charitable remainder trust, or charitable gift annuity;
  • a gift or designation of qualified retirement plan assets, such as an IRA, 401(k) or 403(b);
  • a gift of life insurance

If you have already included Lake Superior State University in a bequest or other planned gift, we encourage you to let us know by completing the membership form. As a recognized Society member you may also encourage others to follow your example. Please know that all information is kept confidential except for name recognition purposes. We acknowledge and respect those who wish to remain anonymous, but encourage you to inform the LSSU Foundation on a confidential basis to ensure your donor intent is met. Through planned gift commitments and membership in the Superior Legacy Society you ensure the success of Lake Superior State University and its planning for the future. Of course, if you have not yet included LSSU in your plans and would like to explore ways to help the University and your family through estate planning, do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to provide assistance for you and your financial/legal advisors in the strictest confidence and without any obligation.

Benefits of Membership

We hope you will allow us to recognize you as a member of the Superior Legacy Society on our recognition website and in the Laker Log Alumni magazine. Your inclusion in the Laker Log and in other publications encourages others to join and be a part of the superior legacy at Lake Superior State University.
